Just re reading this as i like to read about the benefits.

But its strange, just read max's article then this one. Heart attacks seem a big repercussion of smoking. I bet ive read that a few times before but only really noticed it today. My brain doesnt think smoking and heart attack are associated. But reading these articles they very much are.
Quit Date 6/11/17

You're right there GG, I lost my cousin to a heart attack.  He had had Hodgkins Lymphoma and beaten that but had re-started smoking.  The chemo had weakened his heart and he died of a massive heart attack.  And yes, he was a young man with a young family.
